Late change to our training plans -
From Thursday 14 July and on - we will meet at 5:30pm at the AIS Athletic Track at Bruce.
The general sports grounds will be closed again so I have made an executive decision to move Thursday afternoon training permanently to the AIS Athletic track at Bruce, until Veterans track resumes.
Even if the weather fines up, the track at Dickson is so soggy at present that we would only churn it up and see it deteriorate more because of our use of it. I went out there on Wednesday, no rain, but no lights, and a very slippery track.
The advantages of moving to Bruce are -
(1) the lights are always on
(2) the track is all-weather
(3) there is plenty of shelter and change rooms and toilets
(4) and on Thursdays they open until 7pm
The disadvantages of Bruce are -
(1) there is an outside possibility that occasionally the track will be booked and we won't be able to use it. I have checked and I don't think this will happen any Thursday.
(2) you will have to purchase tickets.
Tickets are available from the swimming pool entrance at $4.00 each or $40 for a book of twelve.
I understand that when we train there, we hold onto our tickets until the AIS duty person collects them.
I will have some spare tickets with me which I can sell you at $4.00 each. But I won't have enough for everyone.
Mondays will continue at Parliament House
See, it is getting better! The best is yet to come!
